Many of us have no idea what it’s like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink — even the water in our toilets is clean! That is why Arrow Stage Lines partnered with Charity: Water to complete water projects in Africa.
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
Arrow Stage Lines joined this fundraising campaign from Charity: Water to help build these types of projects around the world. We are excited to announce that $10,099 that was raised was used to build a well. This well was built in the African country of Mali in a small village called Segue. Charity: Water partnered with World Vision to help create a drilled well that will affect about 500 people in the community.
A professional team drilled deep into the earth to reach fresh underground aquifers, then capped the well with a hand pump. Drilled wells reach water that is inaccessible by hand-digging, and usually yield more water than hand-dug wells. They are also more expensive to implement because of gas costs required to drive heavy machinery to the drill site. Everyone at Arrow Stage Lines wants to thank each and every person who did business with Arrow over the past few years. You helped make a difference. There are people across the world who are now able to drink clean water and live better lives because of you. Thank you.
There is thousands of dollars still being put to work from Arrow Stage Lines with Charity: Water. We are excited to provide updates as those are finished. Learn more about our completed project in Segue, Mali by clicking here.
